This skull toothpick thing came from an antique show mom and I went to last weekend. It doesn't have to be Halloween; skulls are good all year round if you ask me.
The flower in the top left corner is actually a place card holder from the same antique show. The brass tag is fun. I have only four left, so I must use wisely.
Picked up the brooch at Miss Frenchies.
After the antique show, mom and I hit a couple of thrift stores. That's where I found this strange little dear. I am digging the vintage feel. Just a sprinkle of glitter pulls the frame together and furthers that vintage feel.
Mom gave me a weird look when I picked up the dear but she thinks he looks at home on this frame.
And the back of the frame.
Dash helped me out tonight while I grouted some things. He likes the paint and glitter and he's pretty good about steering clear of all the boxes of broken dishes. The basement is not exactly child friendly.
I pulled apart an old folding ruler to make the roof of this birdhouse.
And anyone who collects buttons knows that these little plastic white ones accumulate quickly. I was glad to put some of them to use.
Excuse the floor grate. I took these at night and needed all the light I could get. I hate using the flash on the camera. I made this lamp recently and am still looking for the right shade. The cameo brooch is from the Mission Road Antique Mall.
